As always, I’d thought I’d had the best of intentions. But, as always, my best ideas weren’t worth spit to anybody with money and power…
Here’s the first of a set of demo “Liberty Minute” segments I’d hoped somebody would air/sponsor/touch with a ten-foot-pole:
But, to no avail.
I really wish somebody would’ve taken me up on the liberty-themed bluegrass band (my banjo pickin’s rusty, but I could get my chops back), or the liberty-comedy videos, or the “Citizen Soapbox” night-out events, or the…
…well, none of those liberty-themed ideas worked. Too much effort, I suppose.
Perhaps we’re plunging toward our brutal default state because I just couldn’t get people excited about libertarian mime. Maybe that whole constitutional ballet thing was badly conceived, but I’ll try anything if it promotes liberty and justice for all.
But I’ve been thinking a lot lately about liberty-based sports. Americans know and care more about sports than anything else, apparently; and I’ve got this idea that’s a little like the winter games’ Biathlon, except without the skiing. It’s even a little bit like football, in that things happen fast and you’ve got to know who’s on your side and who’s not.
But it’s really like gladiator games or Ultimate Fighting, except these games are not in a stadium!
It’d be terribly exciting.
OK, so just like other sports, there’s a possibility of serious injury or death. Isn’t that part of the attraction?
But the prize for winning is liberty and justice for all!
What could be more wholesome and fun?!?
Eh…I suppose not.
